Gunther from "Friends" spent 11-years jonesin' for Jennifer Aniston -- and the actor who played him spent just as long separated from his wife -- but now he's finally pulling the trigger on a divorce ... TMZ has learned.
Not sure what took James Michael Tyler so long ... according to his court docs he and his wife Barbara Chadsey got married in 1995 -- the heyday of "Friends" -- and officially separated in 2003. He's checked off "irreconcilable differences" as the official reason for divorce.
So, basically JMT's marriage ended pretty much like Gunther's crush on Rachel did in the final episode ... minus the laugh track.
Raymond Felton Divorce
HE CHEATED ON ME
... NBA Star's Wife Alleges
3/4/2014 8:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
New York Knicks player Raymond Felton committed ADULTERY during his marriage ... so says his estranged wife in divorce docs obtained by TMZ Sports.
Ariane Raymondo Felton -- the same woman who ratted Raymond out to the cops about his illegal firearm -- filed docs last month in a New York court seeking to end their 18-month marriage.
But in the docs, Ariane penciled in that she's divorcing Felton because of "adultery."
Ariane doesn't go into detail about the adultery allegations ... but in the docs, she does request the judge throw out their pre-nup. It seems she wants the prenup tossed out on the count of the alleged cheating, but she doesn't explain why.
Ariane is seeking "maintenance" -- which is essentially alimony. She also wants Raymond to finish paying for the last two years of her law school education at Fordham University.
Khloe and Lamar
Together Again ...
As Crime Victims
3/4/2014 3:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are united again ... as victims of a quarter-of-a-million dollar jewelry heist.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... someone pilfered watches and gold chains inside the former couple's Tarzana home ... which has sat empty for more than a month.
Cops tell us they think it's an inside job because there are no signs of forced entry.
As you know ... Khloe filed for divorce and has moved on. The house was sold to "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco.
The jewelry theft was discovered Monday night ... when Khloe and Kris were there cleaning out the house for the new owner.
As for who did it ... cops are investigating. The house has undergone work over the last month so detectives are focusing on some of the tradesmen.
I Support ALL My Kids
ESPECIALLY The Illegitimate One
3/1/2014 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jude Law is on the hook for more than a quarter million dollars a year in child support ... and the biggest share goes to his illegitimate daughter -- NOT the kids he had with his ex-wife, Sadie Frost.
We got the agreement between Law and his baby mama, Samantha Burke ... with whom he had a brief fling in 2008. The doc shows Law agreed to make child support payments for their daughter, Sophia, based on his income -- $3.4 mil in 2009 and $2.4 mil in 2010.
According to the legal docs, Law pays more than $13K in monthly support to Frost -- around $4,500 for each of their 3 kids.
But ... the daughter he had with Burke gets more than double that amount -- $9K a month -- and it goes up every few years until she's 18.
There's probably a good reason for the disparity ... Frost is a successful actress who owns her own fashion line. Burke isn't.
'I'm Just Trying to Get Her Back'
2/27/2014 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke was shockingly candid as he arrived in Washington D.C. Thursday afternoon ... making it clear he's not throwing in the towel on his marriage, telling our photog, "I'm just trying to get her back."
TMZ broke the story ... Paula Patton called him last Friday and said their marriage was over, and Robin flew to Canada -- where she was filming -- in a desperate but failed attempt to change her mind.
As we reported ... things really fell apart after Robin simulated sex with Miley Cyrus onstage at the VMAs last month. But Robin told our photog, the performance had nothing to do with his marital problems.
Our sources say Paula was livid and felt "utterly disrespected" by Robin's antics with Miley.
Robin is in D.C. for a concert Thursday night. He says his performance will be the same, even though some of his songs are about Paula.
He told our photog he's just trying to figure things out.
Richie Supports the Whole Family
2/27/2014 8:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
As if he didn't have enough going on in his life, Richie Incognito's parents have filed for divorce ... and in docs, his dad claims Richie supports his entire family ... TMZ Sports as learned.
Richie's father filed for divorce in Arizona on October 31, 2013 ... just 3 days after Jonathan Martin left the Miami Dolphins due to Incognito's alleged bullying.
In the court documents obtained by TMZ Sports, Richie's dad praises his son for essentially keeping the family afloat for years during extremely hard financial times.
In the docs, Richie's father writes ... "If it was not for the kindness of our son we would have been living in a tent when we lost our home."
In addition to helping out with their living situation, Richie's dad says ... "I have a son at ASU. His tuition is paid by his brother."
The divorce is still in the courts. We reached out to Richie's people for comment -- so far, no word back.
'Orange Is the New Black' Star
Forget Separation ...
Let's Skip Right to the Divorce
2/27/2014 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Orange Is the New Black" star Pablo Schreiber wants to rip off the band-aid -- demanding a straight up divorce ... after his estranged wife asked for a separation first.
TMZ broke the story ... Jessica Schreiber (a yoga instructor) filed for legal separation shortly before Christmas, citing irreconcilable differences. But Pablo -- who plays the corrupt drug-peddling corrections officer George Mendez on the show -- wants to skip the intermediary step.
It's gearing up to be an acrimonious split too -- as we reported, Jessica asked for full physical custody of their two sons (a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old).
Now Pablo -- Liev Schreiber's bro, btw -- is returning fire ... asking the court to block Jessica from getting spousal support. He also wants joint custody of their kids.
Interesting timing for Pablo to block a money grab -- Season 2 of OITNB is set to kick off shortly, which should mean more cash in his pockets.
Emphasis on his.
The Ex Whisperer
2/26/2014 10:04 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Simon Cowell is the new Winston Churchill -- last night he took his current girlfriend AND his ex-fiancee out to dinner ... at the same time ... and somehow, it didn't end in World War 3.
Simon treated baby mama-GF Lauren Silverman and ex-fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy to a fancy dinner at Miami's Prime Fish, where they ate outside and basked in Florida's stifling humidity.
The three later emerged from the restaurant without a single scratch.
Guess Mezhgan wasn't lying when she said she was happy for Simon and his new girl -- the $8 million mansion Simon gave her probably didn't hurt either.
I Haven't Given Up on Paula
2/26/2014 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The fat lady hasn't sung in Robin Thicke's marriage ... at least according to him, because he has had time to think and he's now determined to win Paula Patton back.
TMZ broke the story ... Paula called Robin on Friday to tell him she wanted a divorce ... and Robin jumped on a plane and flew to Canada and tried in vain to convince her to change her mind.
Sources connected with the singer tell TMZ ... Robin desperately wants to save his marriage. We're told he's resuming his tour on Thursday where he's performing in Washington D.C., but he will NOT go out on the town -- something he liked doing in the past.
We're told he wants to convince Paula he can change and be a good husband. The surreptitious ass-grabbing is a thing of the past.
Sources also tell us ... Robin is really concerned about their son. He does not want him raised in 2 separate homes.
The couple released a statement saying they have separated ... but our sources made it clear ... she wants a divorce.
Child Support Case
I Make $1.25 Millon ... A MONTH
2/25/2014 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Marc Anthony may be 110 pounds wet ... but in the money department he's a world champ, because he's just acknowledged he rakes in $1.25 million every single month.
Anthony filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in his nasty child support fight with ex-wife Dayanara Torres. The former Miss Universe wants her monthly support for their 2 sons upped from $13K a month to $113K a month.
Marc had to disclose his income, and his portfolio is impressive. He says he's worth $20.8 million ... of which $260K is in cash. And none of that is in stocks or bonds.
He says he's paying $18K a month in child support in other relationships ... we're guessing that's for the twins he had with Jennifer Lopez.
Dayanara has bitched in legal docs that she was forced to sell her home and live in a crappy, 1,200 square foot San Fernando Valley apartment while Jennifer Lopez was living high on the hog.
Marc Anthony responded in his own legal docs ... Dayanara is a piss poor money manager because she can afford way better than a hovel since he gives her $28,416 a month in spousal and child support.
She was especially ticked that Marc pleaded poverty during their divorce but the week it became final he bought JLo a $4 million ring.
Wife Sick of His Crap
Files for Separation
2/25/2014 3:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Jason London -- the star of "Dazed and Confused" but possibly even more famous for sharting himself in a cop car -- is now on the receiving end of a legal separation.
Jason's wife, Sofia Karstens, has filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in which she seeks to split up their marriage of 2 1/2 years.
The papers don't reveal any reason -- other than irreconcilable differences -- but it could have something to do with his arrest last year in Arizona, after allegedly getting into a bar fight, getting arrested, hurling homophobic slurs at the cops and then defiantly crapping his pants in the back of the squad car.
Jason pled guilty last month to disorderly conduct.
Desperate Flight to Canada
To Save Marriage
2/25/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Robin Thicke threw a Hail Mary last Friday to try to save his marriage ... cancelling his Atlanta concert and flying to Canada to plead with his wife ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the couple tell us ... Paula Patton told Robin Friday she wanted to end the marriage. Robin then abruptly cancelled his show, saying he had throat problems. But the cancellation was solely so he could sit with his wife and try to change her mind.
We're told Paula -- who is shooting a movie in Vancouver -- and Robin had a long, face-to-face talk ... both acknowledging they had not been getting along and frequently arguing.
Our sources say in the end Robin realized Paula was determined to end the marriage and reluctantly agreed, but was very upset. We're told she was also upset.
The next day Robin cancelled his Orlando concert so he could be with their child.
Busted on Gun Charges
After Wife Turns in Pistol
2/25/2014 5:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
New York Knicks guard Raymond Felton was arrested on gun charges Tuesday ... after his estranged wife ordered her attorney to bring the player's gun to an NYPD precinct.
According to NYPD, Ariane Raymondo-Felton's attorney handed over the semi-automatic Belgian-made pistol late Monday night.
The following morning, Ray turned himself in to police for questioning.
It's unclear at this point why Felton's wife of just 19 months brought the gun to cops. She filed for divorce last week.
The NBA player was eventually booked for two felonies -- 2nd and 3rd degree possession of a firearm -- as well as 4th degree possession ... a misdemeanor.
Felton went to the Manhattan precinct to deal with the gun trouble ... right after the Knicks lost another heart breaker to the Dallas Mavericks.
